Topics I've Started

Question Time (4th Feb 2016)

03 February 2016 - 05:40 PM

So, the panellists for tomorrow's show are:

 

Amber Rudd (Conservative)

Shabana Mahmoud (Labour)

Sal Brinton (Lib Dems)

Nigel Farage (Kippers)

Isabel Oakeshotte (Journalist)

 

Farage?  Again?  FFS...  He's like a rancid smell that you just can't get rid of regardless of how many times you try.

 

 

You'll have Rudd and Mahmoud waffling on not committing anything, Brinton trying to sound relevant and Farage spouting populist Trump-like rubbish.  It'd have been good if they'd had a SNP MP on there as they're probably the most solidly committed pro-EU party given the likely subjects raised.

 

I might give it a miss.


The Queen slaps down IDS over the bedroom tax

27 January 2016 - 12:44 PM

(caveat: slightly misleading, but mildly amusing, tabloid-style headline!)

 

The Court of Appeal today ruled that the bedroom tax was unlawfully discriminatory.  Legally, these cases are brought by the Queen on behalf of the claimants against the relevant secretary of state.  Let's see the bluff and bluster from the Tories about how the court has unfairly ruled on this.


Chess: spreading emnity and hatred throughout the world

21 January 2016 - 10:22 PM

Yep, the religious fruitbats of Saudi Arabia again

 

What next?  Carpet bowls because it's played by layabout degenerates?


Tuition fees redux (plus wider maintenance)

15 January 2016 - 01:19 AM

Did you know that England has the highest average tuition fees for home students in the world?

 

Also, today, the government used a statutory instrument to abolish the last of the student maintenance grants in England that go to students from the poorest of families.  They did so because it becomes law without the need for a public debate in the House of Commons by doing it that way.  The Education (Student Support) (Amendment) Regulations 2015 was the mechanism used to amend the law.


Tory MP in expenses shocker

02 January 2016 - 08:57 PM

In that he's actively working to keep them down...

 

Good man...
